Race news Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP Marathon

02 October 2020, 2pm

Mass event remains cancelled but top runners will compete

Valencia Marathon elite field

The Valencia Marathon Trinidad Alfonso EDP will be held as a top-level elite race event on 6 December as well as including a half marathon event. There will be a group of elite athletes who will approach the world records for both distances.

This event has been made possible thanks to the financial support of businessman Juan Roig through the Trinidad Alfonso Foundation, over which he presides. The Foundation is the main collaborator for both races as part of its drive to reactivate sporting events in Valencia. The loyalty of sponsors and collaborators will help this event to take place and continue to promote Valencia around the world.

A maximum of 300 professional runners will be invited from around the world. Both male and female athletes will be pursuing qualifying times for theTokyo Olympics in the summer of 2021.

There will be another 50 athletes looking to give their best in the Half Marathon event held in parallel with the Marathon on 6 December, but not held concurrently. The organisation will create a healthy zone around the event and will take exceptional safety measures to guarantee a great sporting event with minimal health risk. Races will be run on a reduced circuit coordinated with local authorities to reduce the impact on the city and the health risk.

The event will also serve to host the Regional Marathon Championship including 25 Valencian-federated athletes.
